Christ – the…only way?

Posted on Jun 29, 2017 in Creation Nuggets | 0 comments

Recently I was very blessed to be able to teach at a summer camp for a couple weeks. I taught the students that there is evidence for God and His Word from Geology, Astronomy, Biology and History as well. We worked through a lot of questions and challenges, including this last question.   I finished the week with this question: “How is it fair that Jesus is the only way to Heaven?” And I shared this video – such a powerful video showing who God is and showing His plan...

Luke 24:27  – “And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.”   This verse shows us a good example of how, like Jesus, we ought to start from the very beginning (Genesis) and share the gospel with people.   Here is the beautiful story of the redemption of the Tugutil people in Indonesia!  ...

A STEP BACK INTO TIME

A STEP BACK INTO TIME

Posted on Apr 19, 2017 in Blog Posts, Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

  Two weeks ago, Marilyn and I had the opportunity to teach at a Christian Academy in Vernal, Utah and a Sunday morning and evening at a church. Since Saturday was a free day, we went on a hunting trip, looking for a picnic and campground that I fondly remembered as a young boy. Sounds simple enough, but the last time I was there was over 60 years ago, and so my memory juices were really put to the test. I didn’t end up finding the campground … it is no longer...

  Ep  5 – Lanny Johnson’s Testimony – Evolution led to over 20 years as an Atheist!   Lanny and Marilyn Johnson are former evolutionists with degrees in geology and biology. Lanny realized as a teenager that Evolution did not fit with the Bible and thus threw out the Bible and became an atheist for more than 20 years. Creation teaching was instrumental in bringing them to a settled assurance that all of God’s Word can be trusted....

  On a recent trip to Nebraska, while visiting our daughter’s family for the birth of our granddaughter, the church where our son-in-law pastors decided to set up an impromptu three night creation seminar (knowing that Rich was visiting). We had really come to help take care of our one year old grandson during this time, but the Lord allowed us also to be used to train others, specifically some youth who needed answers for a conversation they would be having with an...

THE “EVOLUTION” OF GRAPHIC PRESENTATIONS

THE “EVOLUTION” OF GRAPHIC PRESENTATIONS

Posted on Feb 23, 2017 in Blog Posts, Johnsons from the Front | 1 comment

  You have probably heard that “A picture is worth a thousand words.” Studies have shown that 80% of the knowledge our brain accumulates comes from sight. So with these two thoughts in mind, we have chosen to use pictures and graphics as a powerful tool for teaching. For the last 24 years, Marilyn and I have used many techniques for projecting images. When we first began with AOI, Marilyn was doing the major amount of teaching with a flannel board. This limited us to...

Study with Intent to Obey

Study with Intent to Obey

Posted on Feb 9, 2017 in Blog Posts, Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  Recently I was listening to a recorded teaching by Dwight Pryor (jcstudies.org). In the course of the teaching, Dwight mentioned that “Greeks” (Gentiles, western thinkers) study the Word of God for understanding – Jews study the Word to revere. In fact, many ancient rabbis taught that the highest form of worship was to study the Word with the intent to obey. This is not new to me, but it got me thinking again about my own study of God’s Word. Why am I reading the...

T.u.g.ging… at Fruita Monument High School

  I have been teaching at Fruita Monument High School, during the lunch hour, for the past several Mondays.  It has been with a group of students which use the acronym T.U.G., which stands for Teens Uplifting God. The school website states, “TUG is a group that is devoted to learning more about God and His purpose for our lives.  It is a safe place and one to find encouragement.” Our first session dealt with the immense complexity of the cell and the vast...

  Many times while on teaching tours we are invited to share with Awana groups about Biblical Creation. AWANA is an acronym for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed. The title is derived from 2 Timothy 2:15, “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.” What is Awana?

  I forgot my camera recently (would have loved a picture), but we were blessed with the opportunity to speak at an Albuquerque, New Mexico Christian School… and during chapel time we had 500 high school students, followed by 400 middle school students.  The remainder of the day Lanny taught 6 different 7th grade classroom sessions with 40-60 students at a time. From 7:15 am until 3:00 pm, it was non-stop talking!  If that wasn’t enough teaching for the...

An Encouraging Christmas Card

An Encouraging Christmas Card

Posted on Jan 18, 2017 in Blog Posts, Stepaneks from the Front | 0 comments

One of the great blessings of the Christmas season is to connect by cards and letters with family and friends that we have not seen or spoken with through the year. One recent card we received was from a family that had attended an AOI creation seminar. The mom shared how she, a teacher, was able to explain to her students the difference between micro and macro evolution. “My students are listening!” she said, “what they do with it is up to them.” We never know the impact...
